I've put a copy of the fourier package documentation (amended for my  
local system and using Adobe Utopia Expert fonts) as  
CrashOnPrintDoc.pdf.zip at <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2>. It will  
un-zip as FourierDoc.pdf. Printing from any PDFKit framework program  
(e.g., Preview, TeXShop) crashes the program on the last page (7). It  
sometimes comes up a crash within the printing system.

I know that there are other files but this was one I have quick access  
to that I know crashes the programs.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
